The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 72 – Abandon A Project

Abandoning a project…

Sometimes you’re just not feeling it. Sometimes you feel like everything you write is garbage. Sometimes you lose momentum.

Sometimes you just want to write something else. 

We’ve all bee there. Right?

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda discuss their own abandoned projects and what they ultimately did about it. Then they waste the last part of the episode forgetting an audience is listening.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 71 – Kindle Scout

Kindle Scout. 

Critics say it’s the American Idol of publishing. Others say it’s just another way to get published in this day and age.

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda decide to chat about it for awhile, as Armand went through the process and garnered a Kindle Press contract from it, while Chuck is thinking about giving it a go.

They also talk about random things as usual.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 70 – 2018 Goals

We all have goals. New Year resolutions that might back it to the second week of the year. Stuff we’d really like to do but need the clean slate of the calendar flip to try it out. 

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda decided to do what everyone else does in the beginning of the year and set forth some goals they have for 2018.

Will they succeed? Maybe. Maybe not. Who can really say? 

We can say it will be interesting to look back on this episode at the end of 2018 and see how each co-host did with their list.

The Mando Method Podcast: Episode 65 – Writing Panels

Panels At Conventions.

As authors we’ve either been on an exciting panel or been in the audience ready to ask a brilliant question as a panel is happening. Right before our eyes. 

The Mando Method Podcast co-hosts Armand Rosamilia and Chuck Buda talk about their own experiences on both sides of the table during a panel.

Spoiler alert: Armand gets hot under the collar a couple of times in this one. He needs to switch to decaf? Nah. Just kidding. That’s not real coffee.
